Immanuel Rath, an old bachelor, is a professor at the town's university. When he discovers that some of his pupils often go into a speakeasy, The Blue Angel, to visit a dancer, Lola Lola, he comes there to confront them. But he is attracted to Lola. The next night he comes again--and does not sleep at home. This causes trouble at work and his life takes a downward spiral.

I'm waiting to finish downloading this picture, I know it is legendary. The Internet Archive should be applauded in all circles. I'm in the Philippines and from here I can download hundreds of tremendous films for pocket change. I don't have access to buying or having restored prints or otherwise from here. I feel lucky I discovered this place a while back. I just hope not to drop a huge hard drive and lose hundreds of films. That an event like that is devastating is quite an understatement. If anyone reads my comment, do you any thoughts of how to backup hundreds of films on a hard drive that's like one terabyte in size? Thank you and I'm sorry this isn't a review of von Sternberg's, "The Blue Angel".

This is a great print of this film.
I will not post it on YouTube because I did so once and they threatened me.
Having the Certificates would be the best because anybody who posts PD vids must have these to prove the Right to use the film.
Thanks for this great print, it is better than what was here.
